Why do I want this game on an SSD? There's like a minute countdown before the game even starts, shouldn't that be enough for map loading and all that jazz?

In one of the latest interviews PUBG gave about the hacking they implored people to record a fishy killcam and send it in to them in a post on their forums. Their spokesperson said something like "You have to show us on our forums, how else would we find out about it?" Well, maybe you shouldnt have a pseudo fake report button that does basically nothing?

it really can't be stressed how dumb the non-functional report button is now that they have death cams

How about when you get more than 5 reports in the same game for someone it automatically submits the death cam? The death cams are all in-game engine jiggery-pokery so they would be like, 1MB at the most. I guess the real problem there is someone then has to review all those cams...

We played some squad TPP and there were so many Chung_Lee_6546546873524's with amazing shots and terrible, terrible positioning

Yeah honestly the enemies being terrible at every other aspect but really good shots (and having chinese names + numbers) is the numba juan giveaway of cheating.

On tpp/fpp chat: I like both modes for different reasons. TPP is a more fun, easy-going experience because being able to look 360 degrees means you get shot in the back way less. This also encourages people to play more aggressively out in the open so you get more flicks on people at range.

But, firefights in FPP are way better, as you have the ability to re-position without your opponents being able to watch you over their own cover. This makes firefights feel a lot more intense, where you're taking every possible opportunity to fire and move because you don't want to lose track of your opponents. We had a shootout in mansion (in Miramar) in duo's and it was like something out of a movie, lots of vaulting over cover, lot of movement, close calls, bullets flying everywhere. In TPP we'd probably have just picked a hallway and sat at the end.

If you want a lot of easy wins and are an NA player, play on AS FPP. The players there are real bad and you get the benefits of high ping with none of the drawbacks because you're likely to get first shots on everyone near you if you just look around.

I don't know why this so hard for you to wrap your head around. Some people prefer the extra aspect of the game of being in 3rd Person, enjoy it being easier to spot enemies, might even like the minigame of being better at peeking corners,etc. Or its just more comfortable to play in 3rd especially with the jankiness of the cars. I use a combo of both, with going into FPP and ADS when I have a decent rifle and know where my bogey is. Otherwise just walking around the game is much more fun in 3rd.

Sorry. I couldn't find anyone to make you a cool cipher-themed avatar, and the look on this guy's face cracks me the fuck up.

There's been a few posts here mentioning that the new map comes up more frequently than the old one, perhaps that was true of test server but I'm not sure that is the case now, atleast not on OC solo-FPP. What I've found is this:
  • If I leave a game that's in lobby during matchmaking phase (before the "MATCH STARTS IN..." countdown) and re-que, I will probably end up in the exact same game that I left. I'm guessing there's only ever one game at a time in matchmaking phase per region per game-type (atleast on the less popular region/types - on OC solo-FPP it takes around a minute to get enough players to start the countdown).
  • If I leave a game that's in lobby but do so after the matchmaking phase, I always get a different game if I re-que.
  • If I do the latter (re-queing immediately after leaving) and the first game was on miramar, the second one will always be erangel (I'm not sure the opposite is true because I haven't been actively avoiding erangel, but I assume it works both ways).
It probably goes without saying that I got sick of the new map (died to blue one too many times).

Very important question that I'm just going to test out anyway....

If you jump from the plane over a hot spot where a lot of people jump, and then pop your chute immediately so you take the slowest route down - what are the chances that you get shot out of the air? Cause that's what I want to have happen.

Because SSDs still cost a bunch of money for large disk sizes. Smaller ones get eaten up fast if you keep several multiplayer games around. Plus if you buy a bunch of poo poo off iTunes that ends up eating space as well. I'm not switching entirely to SSD until they have 2 gig ones for like $100.

Depends on how hot the spot is. If it's somewhere crazy busy like school/Patron everyone will be too busy trying to kill the threats on the ground to care about you until you land. If it's less intense on the ground, you'll definitely get shot out of the air once someone notices you.

In case anyone isn't aware- if space is a concern you shouldn't be placing multimedia like movies or music on your SSD. You get very little if any performance gain from it.

That was my first thought reading his post too. I've also found that moving desktop and downloads folders to a HDD (via symbolic links created with MKLINK) helps a lot because they both end up being dumping grounds on my PC's.

I should point out that some games don't really benefit from SSD as much as OS and apps do (particularly games that package and compress content well), and I remember the switch from HDD to SSD being kinda underwhelming for games actually (even World of Warcraft with all it's dynamic content barely improved - though that was back when cataclysm was latest expansion). Planetside 2 was the first game I played that really showed much difference (it used to take over a minute start from a HDD, compared to around 10 seconds from SSD).

1 is not true. I've tried queueing up at the same time as my friends a lot to test this and we don't find same game sometimes. I think maybe you're just in a lower population region and that may happen for you but not for NA

No one is saying donít have a normal HDD as well, thatís where you install Itunes, keep your anime and pornography anthologies. Only things that benefit from SSD speed go on your expensive SSDs, which for goons is the OS and games.

this is how i do. actually got to 7th on my last game but that was a frustrating one because i kept trying to start fights just to practice and teams would just load up in a jeep and drive away once i start sniping. fight me you cowards. i only ended up killing a guy who landed near me but away from his squad and then someone near the end trying to outrun the blue.

Always shoot the tires out first. Ideally, two of them, on the opposite side they're standing on so they don't realize until they get in the car and make a nice, easy target that they aren't going anywhere fast.

I never got the solo vs squads thing. Unless you never play squads and have no MMR for squads so you're up against complete potatos, you're just going to get dumpstered 100% of the time by any squad that all speaks the same language. If you're playing against potatos, you're not pushing yourself enough to really improve and if you're playing against decent players, you're just going to get pinned down and flanked every single time.

Hell, give me 3 potatos and we'll kill a top player every time by just pinning them down then rushing from roughly opposite angles or just grenading them out.

If youíre solo squad you need to have a certain strategy. Even playing regular squad you need to make choices on when to engage and when not too, and if youíre one person you basically canít engage full squads.

You can defend yourself, you can hit-and-run, but regular engagement against decent full squad is suicidal.
